Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

I bought my 2004 Galant about 4 months ago. Everything was great till one day I tried to stop and I heard a loud grinding noise from my brakes. Then my traction light and my ABS light came on. I took it to the dealer where they said it was a sensor and it fixed the problem for 1 day. I have taken it back and they say there is nothing wrong. I thought I was buying a reliable car, but I guess not. I guess someone will have to die before the will get off their butts and fix the problem.
